Swing Band Spotlights Sounds of Stan Kenton

The Central City Swing Band will feature music composed and/or arranged by the musical legend Stan Kenton during its annual Spring Concert, 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 28, at Unity Chapel of Light Church, 1165 Stubblefield Road, Orcutt.

The concert will spotlight tunes arranged in a traditional or vintage swing style, as well as arrangements in a modern jazz style. The actual playlist is not finalized until the evening of the concert.

Led by Bob Swayze, the band has been performing on the Central Coast for a number of years. There are 20 musicians in a standard big-band configuration: five saxophones, five trombones, five trumpets and piano, guitar, bass and drums.

The program will also feature vocals by Mitch Latting, lead trumpet and flugelhorn player, and Kathryn Loomis, the band's new female vocalist, These two artists will perform a duet.

Central City Swing Band has had several personnel changes since the last performance. Charlie Kim and Stephanie Douglass have joined the trumpet section. Tim Towne is the new drummer and Loomis is the new female vocalist,

The event is free to attend although there is a donation basket in the lobby. All donations are split equally with the church, with the balance going into the band’s music acquisition fund. Parking is available.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
